  • 1. Derwent World Patents Index 2012 STATE OF Innovation TWELVE Key Technology areas and Their STATEs of Innovation DERWENT WORLD PATENTS INDEX YEARS SOURCES MILLION RECORDS
  • 2. “Innovation is the process of turning ideas into manufacturable and marketable form.” Watts Humphrey Influential Thinker in Software Engineering “Technological innovation is indeed important to economic growth and the enhancement of human possibilities.” Leon Kass Leading Physician, Scientist and Educator “If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got.” albert einstein Theoretical Physicist
  • 3. 2012 state of Innovation Report Featuring DWPI introduction Innovation continues to be the salvation term and strategy of the decade. Countries are innovating for economic prosperity. Companies are innovating for competitive advantage. And individuals are mastering the art (and science) of innovation for personal and professional success. Findings in this year’s report show that, in general, innovation is on the upswing. It appears that most decreases in innovation resulting from the global economic crisis have plateaued. Global increases in R&D spending support this finding as do increases in stock market values. The technology areas with the largest volume of innovation are Computers & Peripherals, Telecommunications, Automotive and Semiconductors, for the fourth consecutive year. Areas experiencing the largest growth are Medical Devices, Aerospace and Domestic Appliances. In the area of Aerospace, the subcategory for Production Techniques had the largest overall increase, of 19.2 percent. The largest subsectors of growth in Domestic Appliances were in laundry and kitchen equipment. • The largest increase in innovation activity was in medical devices, which had 15.7 percent growth over the prior period. • Aerospace and domestic appliances were the next two fastest growing areas, with increases of 12.9 percent and 12 percent, respectively. • Computers and peripherals continue to lead in terms of overall innovation volume with more than 232,000 inventions for the period. This report, in its fourth consecutive year, showcases 12 leading sectors and analyzes their innovation levels based on patent activity. Patents are a proxy for innovation. Inventive ideas that are unprotected cannot be successfully commercialized. Therefore, by looking at patent activity, one gets a true picture of the innovative landscape, regardless of how commercially successful an invention is. Thomson Reuters showcases the volume of activity as well as the top innovators by region: Asia-Pacific, Europe and North America. • Semiconductors experienced a slight decline of 2.8 percent despite growth in this sector from an annual sales perspective.1 Declines in this sector are attributed to the lag effect of patent publications from the economic financial crisis. • Cosmetics also saw a decline of 2.1 percent due to a decrease in overall sales from 2011 to 2012, as well as retractions in growth, primarily in European markets.2 1 http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/1848168/semiconductor_industry_market_analysis_and_future 2 https://www.npd.com/wps/portal/npd/us/news/press-releases/npd-reports-global-prestige-beauty-annual-sales-results-usgrowth-outpaces-europe/#.UUJbH3_c6-Q.link THOMSON REUTERS 3
  • 4. 2012 state of Innovation Report Featuring DWPI iMPLICATIONS Outsourcing In an era when companies are still recovering from the financial crisis of a few years ago and working to increase profits and shareholder value, outsourcing has emerged as a trend. Outsourcing impacts the backend of the innovation lifecycle, where companies work to move from prototype to commercial product, the latter of which has protected IP rights. Given the “do more with less” philosophy that permeates so many companies today, many organizations are utilizing expert IP services for things such as patent preparation and prosecution, translations, patent drafting and more. The impact of such services on innovation activity is still being evaluated, however current projections are that they will help increase innovation volume as corporate employees expand their capabilities via external sources. Regional Insights Another insight regarding this year’s innovation is that China, despite being the world leader in patent volume, is significantly under-represented in most of the technology area listings of the top 10 assignees. Japan, which is now third in overall patent filing volume, after China and the US, takes the most top 10 slots of any Asia-Pacific nation. 4 THOMSON REUTERS Similarly, the United States sweeps all 120 of the top 10 assignees slots except for two, which are both held by Research In Motion in Canada. European representation is evenly spread over the likely candidates in this region, with significant occurrences from France and Germany. Need for Proven Asset Management Finally, we have noticed that some companies are choosing defensive publications, as opposed to patenting, as a way of publishing inventions less germane to their business. This move calls for an even stronger asset management solution, to handle the tracking of everything from trade secrets to license agreements to patents. Data in this report was compiled using Thomson Reuters Derwent World Patents Index® (DWPISM), the world’s most trusted and authoritative collection of editorially enhanced patent information for 50 years. Analysis was conducted by the Thomson Reuters Intellectual Property (IP) Services team, providers of expert research, analysis and consulting services for corporations, law firms, and governments around the world.
